Forces Impacting Diesel Price in Jamshedpur
Exchange rate: An exchange rate is a major influencer of fuel prices. It is affected by many forces such as bank interest rates, inflation rates, export and import policies, the internal economies of a country etc. The exchange rate will vary periodically by the RBI. If the USD dampens against the INR, the cost of crude oil will shrink. Conversely, if the USD gains against the INR, the cost of crude oil will increase. Eventually, fuel prices in the city are affected.
Fuel prices in Jamshedpur largely rely on the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) that contain the middle-east nations. Wall Street also controls and governs fuel rates. Many people do not know this fact. The quality of fuel extracted and imported also plays a huge role in determining fuel prices in India. The prices of unrefined oil are benchmarked with reference to WTI West Texas Intermediate and Brent Crude Oil. Financial derivatives such as futures, forwards and swaps are also considered.
GST vs Current Diesel Rates in Jamshedpur
The Goods and Services Tax (GST) is one of the largest tax reforms in the history of the Indian tax. It is a complete and unified tax system that has been imposed on various categories of goods and services except diesel, petrol and other petroleum products. These products are not included under the GST purview to assure that the revenue for the government will not be impacted. So, diesel consumers in the city of Jamshedpur continued to remit the previous tax.
The GST Council has to decide whether or not to bring diesel under the ambit of GST. The states have been recommended by Arun Jaitley, Finance Minister, to decline their VATs on fuels. Oil marketers and refineries are expected to receive a hit of Rs.25,000 crore annually owing to the barring of the petroleum products from the GST system. A loss of Rs.5,000 crore is likely to be incurred by oil marketing companies such as Indian Oil, Hindustan Petroleum and Bharat Petroleum. The Indian states are not willing to tax diesel, petrol and its by-products since they would like to cover a primary source of tax revenues.
